Yes, we must not detach a device (rte_dev_remove) if we are not sure all ports are closed.

Yes, we may replace the ethdev RMV event by the EAL event RTE_DEV_EVENT_REMOVE.

I don't understand the issue, but yes we can call rte_dev_remove in EAL,
after the callback return.
Ideally, the callback should be able to return the decision of cleaning
the device or not.

I suggest several steps (a roadmap for HW unplug):
	- in 18.11, remove call to detach_port_device() from rmv_event_callback()
	- in 18.11, call rte_dev_remove() in EAL after RTE_DEV_EVENT_REMOVE callback
	- in 18.11, remove call to rmv_event_callback() in eth_dev_event_callback()
	- in 18.11, rename eth_dev_event_callback to dev_event_callback
	- in 19.02, convert all PMDs to free port resources on rte_eth_dev_close()
	- in 19.05, automatically call rte_dev_remove() from PMD when closing last port
	- in 19.08, we may try to unbind the kernel driver in rte_dev_remove()
